Maybe it’s the grandma in me, but I love turtlenecks! I own one in every color (seriously!) and I wear them constantly in the Fall/Winter. Honestly, I don’t even really know why I love them so much, other than they’re usually comfortable, professional and I don’t have to blend my makeup down my neck because it’s covered <insert laughing emoji here>!?
Whatever the reason, I’ve had lots of practice when it comes to styling turtlenecks so if you’re are looking for a new way to freshen up your wardrobe this season, or want to find a new way to style those boring and basic turtlenecks sitting in the back of your closet, look no further!
- High-Waisted Denim
Probably the easiest, yet most basic way to style a turtleneck is to tuck it into a pair of high waisted jeans, throw on a statement belt and put on some fun booties or classic OTK boots. It’s casual, but trendy and still comfortable at the same time.
- With a Mini Skirt
I love the juxtaposition of showing skin on your legs, but being completely covered on the top half. It’s the perfect way to look “sexy” without showing too much of yourself. If I didn’t have a 17 month old that I’m chasing around all the time, this look would be my go-to.
- Under a button down
This is the quintessential J Crew look and one I love! It screams ‘I’m so extra and have impeccable style’.
- Under a dress
Guilty! I do this all the time so I can continue to wear summer/spring clothes through the Winter. It’s perfect for ladies on a budget (aren’t we all on a budget?!) and women who want to extend their current closet throughout each season.
- Under another turtleneck
I know this sounds weird, but just go with me on this one. Sometimes when I wear a really chunky turtleneck knit, I feel like my outfit is just missing something. The neck is often a little loose and bigger (because I always size up in sweaters so it gives the perfectly imperfect look), so I like to throw on a contrasting color underneath the sweater so it gives just enough of a little pop around the neck.
- In conjunction with a fun sweater
I know what you’re thinking. Stop thinking about ugly Christmas sweater parties, Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone and pretty much every outfit you wore as a child in the early 90s. I told you I knew what you were thinking 🙂 There is a chic way to add a turtleneck under a sweater. First you need a fun sweater…not a boring, basic sweater or you’ll just look boring and basic with a turtleneck underneath. Think graphic sweaters, like this one or this one, and fair isle sweaters like this one and this one.
